Dear Friends: We here @ The Dominican Joe Foundation is a 501c3 U.S. based organization, which provides many services to the community of Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.
Our main mission is to provide education and literacy based initiatives. Last year, through our fundraising efforts, we sponsored 67 impoverished children to attend local private schools. These 1 year sponsorships ($300 donation) include the cost of: tuition, school uniforms, shoes, backpacks, school text books and additional school supplies. Healthcare is also important to the mission of DJF. Since our inception years we have held 3 different medical missions, bringing U.S. Doctors to Las Terrenas to provide important medical services to members of the community.
Central goals for this years fundraising events are to multiply the number of child sponsorships, offer additional medical missions and to raise enough funds to continue the Dominican Joe Summer Camp, which allowed for more than 150 impoverished children to participate in a summer educational camp run by a proven, long time U.S based 501c3 organization, The DREAM Project (www.dominicandream.org) which has been running schools in the Dominican Republic for over 15 years. The 2nd DJ Summer Camp is scheduled to begin July 2017- cost for running this program is $12,000 USD.
In addition, the foundation hopes to meet financial goals necessary to start our very first Dominican Joe Foundation montesorri program this upcoming, 2017-2018 school year. This program will make a significant difference in the community over time but it is not cheap, our annual budget costs are $25,000 USD. Our educational program is being run in cooperation with
The 4th annual DJF fundraiser will commence April 29th, 2017.... If you are unable to be there in person, donate today. Any amount will make a meaningful difference in the lives of many!
*All donations are tax deductable. Please share this link with family and friends to help us raise the necessary funds to meet these important goals.
